There’s something about warm weather that makes everything more romantic. With the flowers in bloom all around, we’ve found ourselves falling more and more in love with the floral goddess look. This look is so versatile — it can be worn in a boho chic fashion with flowing dresses and sandals, totally upscale with evening wear, or even with a simple pair of jeans and a camisole. We’ve put together some beauty tips and tricks to help you achieve the floral goddess look on your own.
Hair: Romantic Updo
The floral goddess look is all about creating ethereal beauty, so your updo should be slightly imperfect and unfinished, as though you put it up for the day and forgot about it. Creating waves helps to achieve this romantic effect.
Start by dividing your hair into two portions: the top half (ears forward) can be secured to your head in a ponytail, while the bottom half hangs free. Curl the loose hair and tie into a low ponytail. Divide into four or five sections and roll upward, pinning to create a bun effect. Release the top ponytail and curl the hair, then part in the center and pin loose strands into the bun for a soft look. Adorn the updo with floral accessories, like the sweet daisies in this floral goddess shot taken by the fashion photography company Fashot.
For a more dramatic effect, choose larger accessories with more volume, like this gorgeous Pink Carnations Halo by Etsy designer Jennifer Wood (Mignonne Handmade).
Also, we highly recommend this Romantic Vintage Updo featuring Dutch braids.
Makeup: Fresh or Dramatic
The floral goddess look is so versatile that you can easily transition between daytime and evening with just a few adjustments. Most important to pulling off the look is choosing the right foundation. In addition to choosing the colour that most closely matches your skin tone, it’s vital to select a formula that creates a dewy effect on the skin — leave those mattifying foundations at the door. These images by Fashot are perfect examples of the glowing effect that comes with choosing the right foundation for your floral goddess debut.
When selecting a palette for your eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick, stick with pale tones that reflect the colours of feminine flowers. Soft pinks and plum shades work well for both daytime and evening. Cream blushes give off a nice sheen, adding to the romantic nature of the floral goddess look. To transition from day to evening, pump up the volume on mascara and eyeliner, but keep the lips nude with a simple slick of gloss. These cosmetics are the ideal elements for a floral goddess makeup routine.
